70 Things We Love About Weaver

It’s 2020, aka Weaver’s 70th birthday!

Founded in 1950 as a single office in Fort Worth, Texas, and now with employees coast to coast and clients across the globe, we think that’s a cause for celebration.

70 years in business! There’s clearly something (maybe 70 somethings) special about Weaver.
